Pastoral care and spiritual support for students and staff

Pastoral  care and  spiritual  support  on campus

Kia ora  koutou.  A warm welcome  to all new  and returning students  and staff.   Our Chaplaincy team is  here  to  support and encourage  you during your  years  at  University and Polytechnic. We are not out to convert you, but to accompany when you find yourself dealing with spiritual or religious questions. To be what the Irish call an anam chara - a soul friend. 

We are here to provide pastoral care and a listening ear, to support people of faith (or no faith) in groups or individually, to pray with or for you, and to provide worship opportunities (informal or formal).  We are  here to help  you  nurture  your   spiritual  health and  well-being,  so that you can achieve  your academic  and other  goals  in life.  

Please  come  and visit  us  in the  Upper  Room on the Mezzanine  Floor in the  University  Union building,  or  send us an  e mail  or  txt  to make  an  appointment. Our  contact details  are  available under  the  "About the  Chaplains"  link .
